Map & Compass the Basics plus Afternoon Treasure Hunt

Would you like to learn a new skill?

Have you had the urge to go walking in the peak district but feel scared, in case you get lost?

Well heres your opportunity to learn the basics of how to navigate by using a map and compass the easy way,

Plan is to meet and walk in the morning and along the way stop at intervals showing you all how to read and navigate using a map and compass, Lunch hopefully at a pub and then in the afternoon to walk onto the Chatsworth Park Estate  for a Treasure Hunt - where breaking up into small groups and by using your new skills of basic navigation found your way to several locations within the Park Grounds and hopefully you will all find the hidden treasure!!

Maps of the area and compass's will be provided

Any problems text or call me on[masked]

See you all on Sunday at the Car Park in Baslow off the A619

Anyone needing the post code for Sat Nav for the car park its: DE45 1SP

    A very interesting day which certainly tested the old grey matter.
    I managed to break a compass .....and navigate my way to Chatsworth cafe.

    I have several compass's, so dont worry about a map or compass, intend to teach you all how to read a map, and set the map, take a bearing and also triangular sectional bearings and cross sectional bearings with the compass, to do these bearings you need a traditional compass, it isnt possible to do all the compass bearings with an app for a phone, i have i think 12 compass's from groups i have taught in the past,

    Couple of points Andy
    You've set the time to 10:30 pm not am
    If we are to be there by that time we will need to set off from Nottingham by about 9:00, and from Derby about 9:45
    I have a Landranger 119 and something that calls itself a compass
